Calling all songwriters!
Calling all songwriters! Old Forge Distillery is partnering with the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development and will be a qualifying round venue for the Tennessee Songwriters Week. Qualifying rounds are scheduled to take place between Feb. 1-15, 2020. Submissions will be accepted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Songs will be evaluated and scored on a numerical scale considering both the song and the performance. Judges look at originality, vocal and/or instrumental talent and the ability to create an emotional connection to the audience.
The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development partnered with the Bluebird for the showcase events, which emphasize a state statute honoring songwriters passed in 2018. It annually designates the last full week of February as “Tennessee Songwriters Week.” The week is designed to celebrate the foundation of the craft, recognize past and present songwriters and pave the way for future artists.
